  Stella Adler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stella Adler (February 10, 1901 – December 21, 1992) was an American actress, and for decades was regarded as America's foremost acting teacher.
Born in New York City, Adler was a member of the Jewish-American Adler acting dynasty, the daughter of Sara and Jacob P. Adler, the sister of Luther and Jay Adler, and half-sister of Charles Adler.
Adler's biggest issue with Strasberg was over the issue of whether an actor should use the technique of substitution, recalling personal experience for a believable result, or living in the moment, using your partner to create a believable result.

Stella Adler was born on February 1, 1901, the youngest daughter of the Yiddish theater actors, Jacob P. Adler and Sarah Adler, who founded an acting dynasty.
Adler was widely acclaimed in the Yiddish theater, but she wanted to break out of that theatrical ghetto and play a wider variety of roles on the legitimate stage and in Hollywood.
Adler believed that "the theater exists 99% in the imagination" and it was this belief that was the foundation of her philosophy and instruction.

 Stella Adler Studio of Acting
To Stella Adler, the impulse to act was a sacred and important one, but she was not dogmatic about any singular approach or method.
Stella Adler, herself a fiercely independent theatre artist, understood that acting becomes vital, exciting, and alive when actors do their own thinking and bring a point of view or a sense of mission to their work.
Another Stella Adler quote still used at the Studio is, “The play is not in the words, it’s in you!” It is the actor’s responsibility to respect the script and to be willing to read deeply and with a fertile imagination.

To Adler acting is a labor of intelligence and will and love, a "profession that is over 2000 years old" and one that requires boundless energy and a sort of selfish (but not narcissistic) ambition first, and then "critical seeing, self-awareness, discipline, and self-control" - for starters.

Adlers interpretations stick closely to received wisdom: Ibsen depicts the individual struggling for liberation from societys conventions; Strindberg portrays men and women in mortal conflict; Chekhov is the poet of nostalgia and loss.
Despite these flaws, Adler is majestic and inspiring as she speaks to us from a bygone age in which the theater was the principal creative home for actors who achieved dignity from their abilities as interpretive artists, not from their celebrity status or their paychecks.
Adler writes from the point of view of performer, literary analyst, and teacher, a combination that serves to leave the reader inspired to tackle these three catalysts of the theatre.
